The School of Arts and Sciences provides critical and
imaginative opportunities in the classroom, as well as in learning
communities. These opportunities exist to
- Give students a broad understanding of their fields and their relation to surrounding disciplines,- Engage students in relevant methodologies and practices, and- Develop writing skills consistent with research and independent thinking.
Additionally, the school provides real-world opportunities through
presentations, exhibits, experiments, demonstrations, festivals, and
conferences. Students thus gain competencies that prepare them for
employment and for graduate school. They also leave with perspectives,
based in the Christian liberal arts tradition, which can lead to lives
of creative and intellectual fulfillment.
